Great views - great location

 Location was perfect, close to lake and town. With 6 bedrooms it was great for the 12 of us staying. Just meant very quick showers for everyone as we ran out of hot water, but that's no problem in the middle of summer when we utilised the lake anyway. 

Large, well equipped home with beautiful Lake View

 We had a very nice stay, it is a great house for 2 families. Thank you!
